Los An­ge­les: Justin Tim­ber­lake and Anna Ken­drick were not told be­fore­hand that their film Trolls World Tour would be re­ceiv­ing an on-de­mand re­lease and they want to be com­pen­sated for it.

Sources for The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter re­vealed on Wed­nes­day that the 39-year-old singer and 34-year-old Os­car-nom­i­nated ac­tress were among the stars not in­formed ahead of the March 16 an­nounce­ment by Uni­ver­sal Pic­tures that the film would be avail­able for VOD.

The in­sider added that their rep­re­sen­ta­tives are ask­ing for them to be paid, likely in the seven fig­ures range, as they still did pub­lic­ity for the film.

No doubt this is a touchy sub­ject as big names in an­i­mated films earn box of­fice bonuses.

Though the film has racked up over US$100 mil­lion (FJ$225.8m) in dig­i­tal rentals over the past month, it is still mil­lions in the red and may never re­coup the money ac­cord­ing to which is not a good sign for the two top­billed

THR stars.
